some day over the rainbow

some day over the rainbow
there would be peace
talk of peace instead of that of fear and war
in Cleveland,
                right now
there's a man called Trump and all his supporters
hardly peacemakers 
the naysayers are shouted down

some day a black man will walk out his door
without fear of being pulled over,
an Afghan girl will go to school
sacred sites will stand for centuries

there's a reason rainbows are so fleeting,
to remind of us what could be,
leaving us a shadow of hope.
